Too soon......To be honest STL is and has always been a baseball city. I have/Had Rams Season Tickets including the PSL's and many of the home games went to the second tier ticket brokers as our customers just didn't care enough to go spend 40 on parking, 2 mile walk to the stadium, spend 11 on a 12 oz beer and 8 bucks for a crappy hot dog to watch a consistently bad product product on the field. Rams were here for 20 years and I believe they only had 4 seasons where they won more games than they lost. Believe me when I say that STL was the reason we lost BOTH NFL teams we have had. But that's for another post.

Given the focus my city has had in the last year or so its just another sign for the times.

Back to the topic....I did buy one of the RTIC knockoff yeti tumblers. Too cold for ICE to melt here at the moment so no real review.

I ratchet strap it down to the bike rack on the back of the Sabre. It will hold two cases of my favorite beverages, a couple port butts or racks of ribs for smoking at the tailgate, lots of bottled waters and I usually fill it, ice it down on Thursday afternoon and dump whatever ice is left on Sunday. It works great. Since it rides on the bike rack, I had a company put my military ribbons and shooting badges on a sticker that I placed in the center of the Yeti.

Now the real story.....a friend of mine called me one day and said "Hey, I'm at an estate sale and they are selling a Yeti 105 for $200" I said, "what is wrong with it?" He said "nothing, they just don't realize what its worth". He then went on to tell me he wanted it for his boat but was concerned it wouldn't fit where he normally keeps his cooler. He ask, "If it doesn't fit will you buy it for $200?" I said yes. That night he called me and said "I'm bringing it to work tomorrow, it won't fit". I got one hell of a deal
Thank you for your service...

Well on a whim I ordered 3 of the 30 oz tumblers just to see what the deal was. I'm sold based on the ice holding capabilities of the cup....just ordered a 45qt and a 20qt cooler from RTic tonight. Might be a fool but we will see....

I ordered 3 of their 30 oz tumblers because I like my iced tea.....usually using tervis tumblers as a standard. They arrived on Friday this week and as a test I filled one with ice at 5 pm on Friday. Still had ice in it on Sunday. Sold. Bought two new coolers. I'll be sure to review when they come in.

I have owned a Yeti Tundra 35 for a year now and really wish I still had that 300.00 dollars in my pocket. Is it better than a 19.00 Wal Mart cooler? Yes, is it 280.00 better? No. Knowing what I know now, I would certainly try a Rtic or something along that line for a lot less $$$. This is nothing more than my opinion.


If the Yeti was about 1/2 the price that they cost, I could really see the value. I think high end cooler competition is going to be a good thing for the buying market. When Yeti came out they had no competition and now they are resting on a brand name that everyone knows.

Says 12 hrs. Don't know. Assume this is correct based on my cold test.
